Salmon discovered to have Japanese tapeworms


Health authorities are warning people of tapeworm-infected salmon fish.

Sashimi and sushi - these seem to be a staple now in every country ever since the different cuisines started to enter various countries, including the Japanese.

Japanese cuisine can be found in many countries and is enjoyed by many patrons. First, it consists of a healthy and balanced diet, which one can deliciously enjoy. However, there is a recent warning that goes against healthy - Alaskan-caught salmon are infected Japanese tapeworms.

American health authorities issued a health warning to the public that salmon fish caught in Alaska are infected with the parasite. Patrons who love raw salmon, most especially as sashimi or sushi, should be wary of the Alaskan-caught ones.

Initially, experts claimed that only salmon caught in Asia were infected with the Japanese tapeworm. However, they recently discovered that the eggs of the tapeworm have also been found in Chum Salmon, Pink Salmon, Sockeye Salmon, and Masu Salmon.

They said that the parasite may survive in the fish if the latter have not been kept frozen fresh with ice after being caught.

Eating raw fish infected with tapeworms may induce skin irritations, nausea, loose stools, weight loss, and stomach pain as symptoms. For some severe cases, the infected person may have heart problems and liver dysfunction.
